Nebula NebulaSlider

< Back to Nebula Main Page



This widget is an other visualisation of a Slider. It represents an integer value which is in a range of data.

Important: This widget is currently horizontal. If you need a vertical slider, please fill a bug with Bugzilla


The usage is very simple :

  • You create a NebulaSlider widget
  • You set the minimum value, the maximum value and the value with the appropriate setters (setMinimum(), setMaximum() and setValue()).
  • You can add a SelectionListener with the method addSelectionListener(). The selection event is fired when the user changes the selection.
final NebulaSlider slider = new NebulaSlider(shell, SWT.NONE);

slider.addSelectionListener(new SelectionAdapter() {
     public void widgetSelected(SelectionEvent e) {
          System.out.println("New value is " + slider.getValue());
